Hi all,

  can I have reviews for this change that fixes how many cards are being iterated over during Howl Full CardSet container iteration? There is no need to iterate over `max_cards_in_region()` cards, it is sufficient to iterate just over the area that this Howl partition represents, i.e. `num_cards_in_howl_bitmap()`.

I will change the way to iterate over this card set container in JDK-8276548 to keep this change small.

Testing: tier1-5 (with JDK-8276548).
